In the new Robert Gates book, ′Duty′, the former Secretary of Defense slams Barack Obama and Joe Biden as being ineffectual leaders. The Gates memoir says Obama lost faith in his own Afghan war policy, believing that the surge of U.S. troops in Afghanistan would fail. Gates says of Joe Biden that he was on the wrong side of every national security and foreign policy issue. He even throws Hillary Clinton under the bus, revealing how both she and Obama admitted that their stance against the Iraq troop surge was purely political. The bottom line in all of this is that Obama has no stomach for winning any war, including the War on Poverty, which marks its 50th anniversary today.
